Too Young for University

It was only after knowing Don for a number of months, I discovered he was a student at Queen’s University, back in the mid-1950s. He made a success of his studies and never looked back. After graduating with a degree in chemistry, he was hired by General Motors, where he worked until his retirement many years later. It was just what he wanted: a job with regular hours, good pay and ample opportunities for promotion.

Don had a number of hobbies, including playing the guitar and singing, as well as a talent for drawing and painting. Later, with family responsibilities, and a desire to pursue these hobbies, he managed to balance his personal / work life rather well. While doing what he could to succeed at work, he didn’t overdo it. He had no desire to be a corporate man, always striving to reach the next rung of the ladder.
